Don't Let Anyone Ruffle Your Feathers ~ Embossing Challenge

The next Addicted to Card Making October challenge card
was for an Embossed card ~ which could be dry or heat embossed.

Having just received several new crafting magazines from the UK, I wanted to try out this adorable peacock die. 

 Yet the idea pattern was heat embossed showing the head and body of the peacock 
in green and his feathers in shades of purple.  
With my space limitations, heat embossing supplies are well stored... at the back of the closet.  With a little digging ...yay, the perfect paper with hydrangea in shades of green to purples.  

The little peacock die fit perfectly all over the small 6 x 6 papers to allow me many cuts of beautifully pre-shaded peacocks!

The magazine set also came with an embossing strip, another easy addition.  Reminder... Get some of those out of storage and put them to use also!
The cute sentiment stamp is from the Stamps of Life collection and adds a nice finishing touch to the layered card. 

This card design is available for purchase on my selling site, for just the right person who needs a little encouraging words from you.  Visit the Handmade Cards album on 
Not Just Scraps.

Thank you for stopping by ~ Pam 


  1. Love this Pam - the way you have have cut the peacock so the colours 'counter' the card base colours is fabulous.

  2. Love the card. The embossing goes so well with the peacock. Hugs
